EXCESS REDUCTION OPTIONS: Britz offers 3 very competitive excess reduction options for peace of mind during your holiday:
Standard Cover (included in the rate)
If the Standard Cover option is taken, the hirer is liable for the first R30 000 damage to a Britz vehicle or third party vehicle / property. The hirer will also be fully liable for replacement or repair of windscreen and / or radio. The excess of R30 000 can be paid by cash, traveller’s cheques or credit card (a manual imprint of the credit card will be taken and the amount will have to be authorised by the bank). This is fully refundable on return of the vehicle to the agreed location, on the agreed date, with no damage incurred to the Britz vehicle or third party vehicle / property. Hirer is responsible for all tyre damage. Further details can be found on the Welcome Letter.
To reduce this excess, Britz offers the following options:
Super Cover: Super Cover at R190 per day for all vehicles will reduce this excess for any damage to either the Britz vehicle or third party vehicle / property to R15 000. The option of Super Cover will also waive the excess for replacement or repair of windscreen and / or radio. Further details can be found on the Welcome Letter. Note: hirer is responsible for all tyre damage
Exclusive Cover: Exclusive Cover at R295 per day for all vehicles will reduce the excess for any damage to either the Britz vehicle or third party vehicle / property to Zero. The option of Exclusive Cover will also waive the excess for replacement or repair of windscreen and / or radio as well as covering all tyre damages. Further details can be found on the Welcome Letter.
• If the rental vehicle is involved in an accident and is not driveable, a replacement vehicle, if available, may be collected from the closest branch.
• If the hirer requires a replacement vehicle to be delivered, then these charges will be for the hirer’s account. None of the excess reduction options cover this eventuality.
• The hirer is responsible for the recovery of the damaged vehicle to the original rental depot.
• If the hirer is unable or unwilling to take a replacement vehicle, no refunds for early termination of the contract will apply.
• No refund of rental days lost will be considered during the period in which a replacement vehicle is being organised.
• Should there be no replacement vehicle available, no refund for lost rental days will be considered.
• Should the hirer continue with a replacement vehicle then a new rental contract and insurance conditions will apply.
Britz reserves the right to apply the above conditions as they deem fit.
EXCLUSIONS: The hirer will be fully liable for any damage to the Britz vehicle or third party vehicle / property if:
• The terms of the rental contract are breached.
• Damage to the vehicle is caused by careless, wilful or reckless driving.. also see Welcome Letter
• Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
• Driving on restricted roads / areas
• Water submersion or salt-water damage is caused.
In case of any damage to the Britz vehicle or third party vehicle / property a second excess will be collected to cover the excess for any subsequent damage.
INFRINGEMENTS: Britz reserves the right to charge the hirer for any speeding or parking fines, associated administration costs and / or accidents including third party vehicle / property damage not reported on the return of the vehicle.
EXCHANGE RATE / CURRENCY VARIATIONS: All credit card transactions are conducted in South African Rand. Due to exchange rate fluctuations there could be some variance in the amount refunded compared to the amount initially charged. Britz accepts no liability for any variances up or down.
CREDIT CARDS: If a credit card is presented as payment, the credit card holder will be jointly and severally liable as a customer.
LICENCE: A valid non-endorsed driver’s licence is required - international licence is preferred.
MINIMUM AGE: Drivers must be 21 years or older.
MULTIPLE RENTALS: Multiple rentals can be combined to qualify the hirer for our long-term rate. Motorhome and car rentals in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa can be combined to qualify if travel is within a 3-month period e.g. one 14-day rental plus one 7-day rental qualifies for the 21-day rate.
ROAD RESTRICTIONS: Vehicles may be taken into South Africa’s neighbouring states but are not allowed into Angola or Malawi. All insurance cover is void if vehicles enter prohibited areas. Britz reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to restrict vehicle movements in certain areas due to adverse road or weather conditions, political situations or any other reason.
REPAIRS: Repairs of up to R1 000 may be effected without authorization and will be reimbursed upon presentation of receipts. When over R1 000 we need to be contacted for authorisation.
CHANGE OF VEHICLE: Britz reserves the right to substitute a comparable or superior vehicle should the requested vehicle not be available due to unforeseen circumstances. This shall not constitute a breach of contract and does not entitle the hirer to any refund.

• If cancelled 5 days to 0 days (no show) = 50% of gross rate
